Hello Red Hots!
We love the excitement folks have expressed about the OFOS classes! THANK YOU!!! It's been absolutely wonderful to be able explore these sequences in depth and we're only just beginning!
For folks that are new to this, Bethany has spent years writing her own sequences. Everything that we teach at RHY is original and each class works together with the others so that folks get to practice a full spectrum of poses in different orders, and enjoy what that brings to their practice!
Some years ago she put these into a collection and we were going to publish a book ( and still will ) but the evolution of technology really brought everyone's attention onto their phones and Bethany really felt like her attention was needed providing classes and meditations to her Fireheart Yoga YouTube channel.
But the classes themselves have always there and the collection has grown!
She names all of her classes. Each one captures a specific feeling and the sequences are made up of poses that explore that feeling, helping us to celebrate, explore or deal with life. Some classes are built around joy and a deep appreciation of life. Others deal with grief, loss or sorrow. Some are a focus on determination and others are there to help us reach deep levels of introspection. Every aspect of life through yogic eyes can be found in these classes!
We've just begun teaching them and we will certainly explore each much more on this site and other places, but one thing has become immediately clear - we need to post the readings!
The reading are the explanation of the intent of each class. They explore some philosophy, offer some perspective and help to explain more about the intent in creating them.
We will start posting all of these reading here, on the UPDATES page, each week, starting tomorrow on Valentines Day! All of the readings so far will be posted in order to catch up and we very much hope that everybody enjoys them!
Happy Valentines Day!
